In a large bowl, beat 2/3 cup water and meringue powder with an electric mixer at high speed until soft peaks form.
While continuing to beat at low speed, gradually add sugar, one cup at a time, mixing well after each addition.
When frosting starts to appear dry and crumbly (after adding about 6 cups sugar), add remaining 1/4 cup water.
Add shortening, corn syrup, salt and flavorings. Beat at low speed until light and fluffy.
